A Hamas leader says the Islamic militant group is sticking to its conditions for a cease-fire with Israel, including an immediate withdrawal of Israeli troops from the besieged Gaza Strip.
Hamas political leader Khaled Mashaal says the group has informed all the players involved in trying to secure a cease-fire of the group's demands. The group's call for an immediate Israeli withdrawal has emerged as key issue in negotiations.
An Egyptian proposal calls for a 10-day cease-fire that would allow Israeli troops to remain in place until a security arrangement is negotiated to ensure that Hamas cannot continue to bring weapons into Gaza.
Mashaal spoke Thursday in a televised address from the Syrian capital.
